Andrew Lippa chats with Matt Tamanini and James Marino about his newest project, “Unbreakable”
Guest: Andrew Lippa
Spanning 120 years of unsung history, Unbreakable is an epic choral work exploring the gay experience in America through the words and music of Andrew Lippa. It was recorded live at its world premiere featuring The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus with soloists Britney Coleman, Marcus J. Paige, Lisa Vroman, and Andrew Lippa at Nourse Theater in San Francisco, CA in June 2018.
The CD package includes a 36-page booklet with full lyrics, performance photos, a synopsis, and liner notes from show producer and Academy Award winner Bruce Cohen. The album is produced by multiple Grammy Award winner Leslie Ann Jones, with Andrew Lippa serving as executive producer.
Unbreakable will be presented by ten more choruses across the country in the 2019-2020 season.
